  2. Windows 10 backup setup failure

    I am also experiencing backup failure after upgrading from 7 to 10. The backup advises some files were missed:

    "Backup skipped backing up G:\My Pictures External Hard Drive G\Kitchen Kings Heath September 2015 as it is on the backup target.

    Backup skipped backing up G:\Video's\Videos as it is on the backup target.

    Backup encountered a problem while backing up file C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\LocalLow. Errorcannot find files and videos after installing windows 10 from 7. :(The system cannot find the file specified. (0x80070002))

    Backup encountered a problem while backing up file C:\Users\Administrator\Contacts. Errorcannot find files and videos after installing windows 10 from 7. :(The system cannot find the file specified. (0x80070002))

    Backup encountered a problem while backing up file C:\Users\Administrator\Searches. Errorcannot find files and videos after installing windows 10 from 7. :(The system cannot find the file specified. (0x80070002))"

    It also keeps referring to Windows 7.

    One other problem is a request to free up storage space in 10 by deleting previous systems. The procedure does not function.

    cannot find files and videos after installing windows 10 from 7.

    Install Everything Search. Let it start and build it's index, takes 20 seconds or so normally.

    Use ext:xxxx in the search box to locate all files on your computer with that file extension (mpeg mp4 avi whatever extension you need to find). That will show you if they are anywhere on your computer.

    Did you look under C:\Windows.old\Users ????
